NETPULSE: The Next Generation of Digital Fitness Integration

The fitness industry is no stranger to new technology. From wifi-enabled, internet-connected machines to wearable fitness trackers, the industry is constantly moving forward. One of the biggest technological advancements we’ve see recently is the rise of Netpulse, a platform that interconnects disparate cardio machines, fitness trackers and fitness apps to deliver a comprehensive digital solution to health clubs that maximizes member engagement and enjoyment—and keeps them working out longer.

Netpulse is currently the digital platform of choice at over 2,500 fitness facilities (giving it a whopping 83% market share in this category). It’s easy to see what makes it so popular: By letting users track and consolidate their fitness results across machines from a variety of manufacturers (including the Cybex 700 series, the TRUE CS series and the Matrix 7xe treadmill), Netpulse gives users a single interface with which to accurately stay on goal. Moreover, by integrating fitness results with a user’s activity tracker data (such as FitBit), or with data from their mobile device—such as results from fitness apps like MapMyRun or nutrition apps like Fooducate—users get a robust view of their total fitness picture.

What’s more, Netpulse provides a personalized media experience that makes exercising more enjoyable and rewarding. From tracking to entertainment, all fitness and media capabilities are accessible at the touch of a button. On-demand options include hundreds of popular and classic TV shows, movie trailers, music videos, and video game trailers—and the easy-to-use touchscreen allows users to create and save personalized playlists of their favorite music videos. Plus, members whose clubs utilize Netpulse can join customized club challenges, keeping them engaged and coming back. Even older or incompatible cardio equipment can be integrated using the Netpulse mobile app.
